What does a woodworker’s house trim look like?
I’m building a house and contemplating custom trim options. Has anyone done any bespoke trim/casing on their house or does everyone buy pre-milled stock at the store and put their efforts elsewhere? I’ve found it hard to find examples and think maybe there’s a good reason for that. I’m contemplating a baseboard made up of red birch, with a small walnut cap on top with a chamfer and a rabbet at the bottom (also possibly a rabbet at the bottom of the base, but I never see this done). Would a box joint at outside corners be a cool detail or just look silly? I’ve never seen it. I’m also considering building out window jambs/casings with pocket holes and flush casings similar to a picture frame/mirror but it seems that generally all casings are done much the same way. Am I setting myself up for issues if I attempt flush casings built this way? Thanks for any advice.
